It's impressive that such a young extension (in June 2011) has so few issues, and is so thorough and complete. This is one of the few extensions that looks like it had a multi-million dollar design team working on it. Beautiful to look at, with a design that will make your entire Joomla site look cleaner and more professional. Bravo!
Installation was fast and painless, everything is where it should be, no complex work-arounds, works PERFECTLY on Joomla 1.6 (the first component in my library that works without issues on 1.6!). I can't say enough good things about Easy Blog!
Thank you very much for your feedbacks :)
I'll gladly adjust this review if the component developers fix these issues, but sadly I suspect they won't have any time to work on the component, because they are busy providing support.
As far as their support goes, expect 3-8 hours to get a one line, unhelpful response. They wasted quite a bit of my time stringing me along when they could have just written a complete answer to my issue in the first response. Not particularly polite, slow responses without a lot of depth. Waste of my time and money.
P.S. this is the first negative review I've ever written, and my library contains over 300 Joomla extensions.
I'll be streight to the topic:
- php.ini adjustments are not needed, there are no work around needed and in joomla 1.6.3 and 1.6.4 it works.
- we do have time to work on the component and that's the thing we love doing the mos, and facts prove it: http://app.ohanah.com/release-notes > 8 releases in 8 weeks ;-)
- We offer immediate refunding policy so if you think ohanah is not for you, don't need to waste your money/time, just ask for a refund and we will do it within a day.
This software has saved me tens, if not hundreds of hours or headaches, and is worth every penny. I won't build a Joomla site without it.
I've been using this since 1.3.4. The version 1.x.x component didn't quite meet my needs, but the improvements since 2.x.x are dramatic. This is now one of my most used extensions, and I have very few complaints. The only feature I'd like to see added right now is some additional control over sort ordering. Even a simple approach like allowing an up/down arrow ordering like a Joomla article would be nice. The included sorting options are very nice and functional, but sometimes automated ordering just doesn't work.
That said, I couldn't live without this component. Thank you!
